Calcasieu Residents Urged To Take Community Needs Survey
The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury’s Human Services Department has put out a survey they need parish residents to fill out to determine the community's needs.
Tarek Polite, Human Services Department Director, told KPLC the survey is an excellent way for Calcasieu residents to voice their concerns and give their input on how the parish can deliver their services more effectively. Polite said they want to improve after two hurricanes, a global pandemic, and an ice storm.
The survey is brief and will include questions on which conditions in the parish contribute to poverty and what the current barriers are that prevent families and individuals from improving their socioeconomic conditions.
The Police Jury has to do this survey every three years as a requirement to receive federal grant money. Polite says the results of this survey will help them evaluate their current services, identify any issues, and create programs to correct the service issues they currently have.
Survey responses will be accepted until Friday, April 23. Residents who don't have the means to access the survey online can call 337-721-4030 to request a survey be mailed to you.
